Good quiz, but surely if the last one goes down as 'video game' as well as 'comic', so should butcher bay and arkham asylum?

"The Hobbit" is at least as good an answer for "Dol Guldur" as "Lord of the Rings" -- in fact it's more important to the plot of The Hobbit than Lord of the Rings. You should probably accept it.

@Hejman: Thanks for the Editor's pick!
@michaellumb and micah: Fixed, thank you.

Fun quiz! Green Mile should also be Movie/Book.

not sure about the inclusion of the british tv show prison on here. surely porridge - HM Slade would have been a better inclusion as the whole show is set in a prison, rather than something that appears in 1 maybe 2 episodes of the one included.
Mar 6th, 2011 at 17:05 GMT
this may seem obvious, but the instructions say "can you name the fictional prisons?" ... and all the prison names are given to us.
Mar 6th, 2011 at 17:18 GMT
@beatrixkiddo That was also my initial thought, but the issue is Porridge is set in a REAL prison, and this quiz is looking for FICTIONAL prisons specific to a show or book.
Mar 6th, 2011 at 17:29 GMT
Shutter Island is a book by Dennis Lehane, so it should be Book/Movie
Mar 6th, 2011 at 17:44 GMT
Same is true for Shawshank Prison...it was a book first (Stephen King's Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption).
Mar 6th, 2011 at 18:01 GMT
belle reeve was also in the smallville tv series
Mar 6th, 2011 at 19:17 GMT
Can you name the works of fiction in which these prisons appear might be a better title.
Mar 6th, 2011 at 19:24 GMT
Didn't know City of Heroes is so little known.
Mar 6th, 2011 at 19:33 GMT
I didn't think Dol Guldur was any sort of prison, but rather just Sauron's stronghold in Mirkwood before he returned to Mirkwood.

Thanks Sporcle for publishing my quiz. @jpahk, person1234, amwoods13, and funnjokes: Nice catches. Sorry for the mistakes, I apparently wasn't thinking properly when I contributed this quiz. I cannot change it, but I will email Sporcle. Thanks again.

Seems like "Simpsons" could be accepted without the "the"
Comment below threshold:

im disappointed that azkaban or nurmengaurd arent included
Mar 6th, 2011 at 23:30 GMT
Love the Belle Reve inclusion..
Mar 7th, 2011 at 07:09 GMT
singin185 - it is. runnergirl35 - azkaban is there; nuremgard is a little obscure for non-diehard fans.
Mar 7th, 2011 at 09:07 GMT
I'm _very_ surprised Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane ("Silence of the Lambs") isn't on the list.
Mar 7th, 2011 at 12:44 GMT
Belle Reve was also in Smallville.....might want to accept both answer.
Mar 7th, 2011 at 18:13 GMT
Good idea, though the high percentages proportionate to correct answers indicates a need to include more alternate answers for each prison's source materials
Mar 7th, 2011 at 18:27 GMT
Ahhh. No Flugendorf Prison from Top Secret? Shame.
Mar 8th, 2011 at 03:55 GMT
Swapping movie/book to book/movie holds true for Green Mile, LOTR and Potter as well. All were books before they were movies. Also I'm suprised nobody has pointed out that Shutter Island is listed as a Bppl instead of a Book.
Mar 8th, 2011 at 05:14 GMT
Looks like someone's fingers were one letter off when they tried to type 'book'.

Citadel is also in Star Wars: The Clone Wars
